“Twenty five years ago my remarkable sister, Erika Klein, walked through the doors of Global Shop Solutions for the first time as an employee. Since then, she’s grown to lead our R&D department managing 4 teams and nearly 100 people earning the respect and admiration of all employees. Our manufacturing customers around the world benefit from her ability to lead others as her team brings great products to market every day.”
